As noted above, I am in the throes of the pre-publication ordering period for my first collection in thirty years, Blackbirds Dance in the Empire of Love, Finishing Line Press. Without pre-publication orders there will be no press run, and therefore I hope you will add this, my offering to the world of fifteen comparatively recent poems, to your library.
My friend Samuel Peralta, a renowned poet in his own right, has paid me the highest of compliments: "If you care about poetry, buy this book!"
Cover art by John Sokol, my favorite among his mixed media pieces, "Mirage."
Jim Moore, Invisible Strings, Graywolf Press, and Dawn Potter, Director, Conference on Poetry and Teaching, The Frost Place, How the Crimes Happened, CavanKerry Press, have lovely things to say about my work on the back cover of the collection.
Please visit the chapbook's site and click on the link to Preorder Forthcoming Titles from Finishing Line. I will periodically post work from the collection there and new work from me is coming soon to La Parola!
Here is a poem from Blackbirds Dance...
